Rides, all including Intamin are the safest they have ever been, to the point where some rides are shut down without any fatalaties at all because the cost of updating an old ride is too high, like the long running Black Hole lets not forget, with no major injury history suddenly needs more work of some description to reach current safety standards, its the world gone mad.
What everyone has lost is common sense, people assume these days if they can do something, like stand up mid ride, its a safe thing to do, so you all have to be firmly bolted down, which on some rides ruins the sensation completely.
Years ago if you stood up on a ride, mid ride, you were going to fall out, everybody knew that, obey the rules and you will be fine, simple.
It seems to me the safer stuff gets the more stupid we as the public get.
I will state that i'm not talking about any specific event and i'm sure some accidents are ride op/ ride manafacturer error, but we should also take some responsibilty for our own safety even at a theme park.
Anyway i do feel for the families of any accident at a Theme Park, one accident is one too many for any reason.
